All of us want beautiful hair, but making it look prettier can also do lots of damage to it. Having a balance between styles and condition requires some effort. The advice in this article can help you to get the look you want without having to worry about the problems associated with over styling.
If you have got really dried out and damaged hair, try olive oil! At a time when you won’t be going out, apply the oil in downward strokes to hair length and let it sit overnight. Olive oil will give your hair some much needed nutrients and restore some of that luster.
When you are using a hair dryer, you should take extra time to dry it on the cool setting. The cool setting on your hair dryer will cause significantly less damage to your hair, than if you dry it with very hot air. Hot air will cause drying to the hair.
While you should wash your hair often, don’t overdo it. Washing your hair too often, strips it of its natural oils, which gives it shine and volume. For most people, washing their hair a few times a week is enough, unless their hair is especially oily. Washing too often will turn hair dry and brittle.
Those with curly hair should avoid styling with heat regularly. Irons that reach over four hundred degrees can actually permanently alter the helices of your curls. This creates curls that are not uniform, and continues a dependence on the hair iron or blow dryer. Learn to love your curls and they will reward you with confidence!
Do not use a blow dryer if you do not want to dry your hair out. Heat styling saps moisture from hair, leaving it dry and frizzy. One alternative to blow-drying is to wrap your hair with a towel when it is wet. This will make your hair dry naturally, leaving you with minimal frizz.
Avoid rubbing or otherwise pulling at your hair when you use a towel to dry it. This can stretch your hair, which can cause breakage. Additionally, it can cause frizzy hair, which is unsightly. The best ways to dry your hair using a towel are to gently pat or press out the excess moisture, or simply wrap it in a loose fitting towel. Also try not to brush your hair if it is wet. This can damage the ends and cause breakage.
To get the best shine possible to your hair, wash it with cool water. When you wash your hair with hot water, you are likely to dry out your hair in the process! Cool water, on the other hand, has the opposite effect – it can actually increase the shininess of your hair.
